CAN YOU SEE ME NOW?

I am hiding.

I am shy.

I am camouflaged.

No one will ever find me.

Except for maybe the fly,

who insists on buzzing around me.

The sun has spotted my spots

with its rays of sunshine.

The bird is eying me with 

its black eyes.

But otherwise,

I’m safely hidden from sight.

Hidden from humans.

What am I?

Could you tell what I am?

MY OWN OASIS

Source:

 

Does this place exist?

Is it an illusion?

I need palm trees.

My own oasis.

An escape from the world.

Empty of people.

I can see it.

Feel the hot sunshine.

Cold water on my toes.

A paradise so sweet.

Honey on my lips.

I’m there right now.

Don’t bother me.

LET THE WORLD COME TO ME

 

 

Tall windows to let in the day.

The sun rises and shoots its ray.

I watch people saunter by.

Peek into windows up high.

Nothing can get past me.

I’m free as you can see.

To let the world come home to me.

I’m as happy as I can be.

SILENCE

SILENCE

In a world of noise
Where no one is heard,
We could use some silence.
A bit of quiet.

Take a step back
And be quiet.
Watch for the response.
See the surprise.

For silence can convey
What words cannot.
A feeling or a thought
To be lost in words.

Don’t be afraid
To make your stand.
To be different.
Refusing to mouth inanities.

Be a breath of fresh air
In the violent storm.
Standing strong and silent
In the wake of it all.

WHAT IF

  1. WHAT IF

    What if the sun exploded one day?

    The day began as all others.

    And then the sun kept getting larger.

    Hotter.

    Steamier.

    Until it exploded.

    Hot fire balls fell to earth.

    The rest were absorbed into space.

    Once the fires were extinguished,

    darkness fell across the earth.

    The moon wasn’t ready to come out yet.

    Who would save the earth?

    Warm the earth.

    Provide the needed sunshine for plants

    and all living things.

    The moon stepped forward.

    It puffed up to appear larger.

    It blew out steam to warm the earth.

    “You’re hired,” mankind shouted.

    The moon replaced the sun.

    Twenty four hours a day.

    No time off.

    No rest.

    But a lot of grumbling.

    So we ask: What if the sun exploded?

    We would be in trouble.

    Stuck with the moon for sunshine.

    Sun, we bow down to you.

GREEN LIGHT

GREEN LIGHT

The light is green.

Take a road trip.

To nowhere.

To everywhere.

Leave it all behind.

Open your mind.

Open your heart.

To the possibilities.

To new places.

To new people.

Leave it all behind.

The light is green.

Go for it.

PARADISE

PARADISE

To some,

paradise has beaches and sun.

To others,

it might have snow and trails.

But to me,

paradise is a good book.

There’s nothing like the feel,

the smell,

the excitement

of opening a new book.

Inside,

there are worlds to explore

and people to meet.

Open a book,

and live a life

like no other.
